Goodreads Blurb:
 Someone is about to get some Spice in his life.

Spice has nothing but the clothes on her back when she returns to Chicago. She's looking for a better life, and that means reuniting with her estranged twin sister, Sugar. She isn't thrilled to find out Sugar's boyfriend is a vampire. But then she meets Eric, once the bottle-cap-glasses wearing nerd next door - now grown into the kind of man she'd love to snuggle with on this cold winter night...and he's offered her his room in Sugar's house.

Eric can't believe Spice has returned. He'd given up hope of ever seeing her again, let alone having her stare at him as if he's sex on a stick. But now that all of his fantasies for them are coming true, reality rears her ugly head and Eric must tell Spice his intimate secret; he's actually an Alpha werewolf looking for his mate and he thinks he's found her.

Warning: Graphic sexual content.

My Review:
The second book in the Vanguards series that has the best nerd(s) I’ve meet on a page yet! It can (without a doubt) be read as a stand-alone but then you’ll miss out on Sugar’s story and it was a really fun read. Plus you’ll also miss out on getting to know a lot more about all of the other characters and the “whys” behind who they are :)
Sugar’s sister Spice (they are twins) comes for a visit after a two year struggle to get her life together and live her dream. Returning there with nothing other than the clothes she is wearing, she hopes there is a better life for her there alongside her sister once again. Finally reaching where her sisters now lives (a posh neighborhood), she not only finds Eric (the once ultimate nerd), is as hot as a hot hunk of a man could be. But her sister is now dating (and in love) with a vampire.
Eric has been through more changes than he cares to recall. But he’s making due, especially with his newly earned status as an Alpha werewolf. He’s struggling to keep the pack together. The previous Alpha kept the pack in shambles and Eric will do whatever it takes to improve the packs condition. That includes taking a mate. When Spice shows up and he is in shock and awe that he gets to see her again, but is worried that she will not accept him for what and who he now is.
Separate yet together they both find their place and way to where they want to be. Acceptance, excitement and huge changes are made, but in the end all ends up as it should be.
A short entertaining read that any paranormal lover will find enjoyment in.
